Having failed at A couple of behemoths in the area I was able to see inside this smaller chapel. PP granted in 2017 for conversion to holiday home ( but don’t tell the Sons of Glyndwr, that takes me back!).

Standing in an area of ONB

Capel Bethania Was a Methodist Chapel built in 1875 and the Rev. Tom Nefyn Williams used to preach there (the commemorative plaque not my photograph was on the chapel's wall but it has now been moved)

The chapel and ancillary vestry appear in their current form on the First Edition of the Ordnance Survey Map of 1889.

The inscription on the plaque translates to:
He was a candle shedding light and burning down

The Reverend Tom Nefyn Williams

1895-1958

A native of Pistyll

Quarryman

Benefactor

Evangelist

Looks like an idyllic location through the window. Amazing how many of these are falling apart across Wales

Nice one!
There doesn't seem to be that many Welsh chapels left now that are disused but still have all the pews and features still left intact. Most seem to have been stripped and semi converted then run out of money/interest.
